gun violence. >> michael: i was so frustrated last week in harry reid for not bringing it to a vote just because it would be great to get some of the republicans and frankly democrats on the record. today a white house spokesman said the assault weapons ban will eventually come to a vote. john, do you believe it? >> if it comes to a vote maybe that will be in the next congress in 2014 and that will be another 60,000 dead americans from now. the democrats aren't a lot better on this issue. harry reid withdrew the assault weapon bill from a vote because he didn't want his democrats to take, quote, a hard vote on guns, because his democrats in red states and more rural areas consider a background check for criminals to be a hard vote never mind military-style weapons. >> michael: and those democrats that bloomberg is argue getting -- targeting, do you think they can be brought over? >> i absolutely think there's hope of bringing them over if the american people stand up for their rights. their rights to live safely in their homes and in their schools and in their
to "hardball." harry reid dealt a devastating blow to gun control supporters yesterday when he signaled his bill next month won't include senator dianne feinstein's assault weapons ban. handing a political victory in round one to the nra. according to reid it was a numbers game. >> right now her amendment using the most optimistic numbers has less than 40 votes. that's not 60. i'm not going to try to put somebody on the floor that won't succeed. i want something that will succeed. >> i saw that coming. feinstein who has championed the cause for decades of fighting assault weapons plans to keep fighting for her ban. >> very powerful. i've known that all my wife. it doesn't take a weapon away from anyone. i mean, my goodness, the nra says there are 2 million of these or 3 million of them, whatever it is, in the country already. how many assault weapons do you need in the united states of america? >> well, the new york covered that this morning. look at that, wow. the headline "shame on u.s., assault weapons bill is dead." that is tough. surrounded by the photos of the children there killed in
of this and why harry reid yanked assault weapons, why we never even got the magazine limit of ten rounds on your magazine for the semiautomatics. why that never got even in play here. >> well, i mean, it's partly a testament to the power of the nra, the power of the nra with democrats. look at what's going to happen in 2014, democrats are up in red states. people like kay hagan, folks like that who don't want to be on record supporting the assault weapons ban. the house figured as well to add the assault weapons ban to any major bill would kill it. >> even though a majority of people want a ban. >> the reality is polls don't vote. polls aren't up for re-election. all of the folks in the red states are up for re-election in 2014. i think in many ways they will be happy to vote against an amendment, this assault weapons ban, but also support universal background checks. that will make them look moderate. >> mark, how do you build an organization of people that really do keep their minds on and their money on gun safety? >> well, i think we've started to do it. at this point we have more than 900 m
changed he remembers he needs to keep the nra happy. >> if harry reid is not a victim of this nra lobby, as some people have argued, mr. graze, the senate majority leader released the statement tonight saying he started the process of bringing a gun violence bill to the floor and he adds, quote, i want to be clear any bill that passes the senate must include background checks. has senator reid gotten the message and perhaps standing up to the nra and other forces lobbying against such sensible legislation? >> sure. i have to say i know senator reid is catching a lot of heat for taking the assault weapons ban out of the bill. i don't place the heat on saturday reid, place the heat on senators who won't vote for assault weapons ban. he's counting votes. while the assault weapons ban is important when the public is ready and demanding change, a background check is probably the most important thing you do to save lives so we're very happy he said what he said. >> daniel, your life has been changed by gun violence. you helped save gabby gifford's life after she was shot two years ago. have y
an assault weapons ban, democratic lawmakers can't get it done. senate majority leader harry reid now says such a ban has zero chance of passing. here's michael moore on "piers morgan live. ". >> this attitude of, well, we're not going to be able to -- this is why our side -- we have these we weinies on our side. this is what i actually admire about republicans. they have got the courage of their convictions. >> the nra's message does seem to be resonating, while a majority of americans are in favor of an assault weapons ban, polls also show support for gun control measures are fading. also are fading memories of newtown. we know dozens of children were murdered there, but moore suggests the horror of that day has now faded. he has an idea, though. if they wish, moore wants parents to release pictures of their children after they had been slaughtered by the gunman. >> in my blog i talked about a young man by the name of emmitt till, 1955, a young black kid that was murdered down south simply because he was black. and his mother insisted that there bow an open coffin because she wanted phot
. senate majority leader harry reid decided to drop the proposal to keep republicans from blocking it. >> i'm not going to try to put something on the floor that won't succeed. i want something that will succeed. i think the worst of all would be to bring something to the floor and it dies there. >> of course the nra is fighting against tougher gun control. and contributions to the group's political action committee are surging now. the nra raised almost $1.6 million in february. and in january it raked in $1.1 million. vice president biden teamed up with new york mayor michael bloomberg today to push for new gun control laws. biden made an emotional appeal for action. >> for all those who say we shouldn't or couldn't ban high capacity magazines, i just ask them one question, think about newtown. think about newtown. think about how many of these children or teachers may be alive today had he had to reload three times as many times as he did. think about what happened out in where gabby giffords, my good friend, was shot and wounded. think about when that young man had to try to change the
. >> stephanie: kind of out there courage from harry reid that we're used to. >> i hope i haven't offended anyone by my sort of support for some kind of legislation. >> stephanie: all right. rude to end -- not a fessive note at all. hal and jacki talked about the iraq war. it is amazing when you think of -- we think we know the horror of it. you pointed out the birth defects we caused in iraq which is -- along with other things. you say iraq is now a divide country with a pittyless regime. it uses rape, torture and execution to punish enemies. place where they haven't gotten the electrical grid back to where it was before the war. at least saddam hussein isn't running the joint right? we still haven't discussed birth defects and cancer and the depleted uranium. >> right. the use of -- i think the estimate was in the course of the war something like eight billion depleted uranium bullets were used and that's not getting into the other munitions. and especially in places like fallujah and basra where the bigger battles took place. what that's left behind. the way in which that causes birth defects
this week. senator harry reid, you'll remember, announced that he was dropping the assault weapon ban from the current proposal, before the senate bill. now, senator dianne feinstein says she will introduce it as an amendment, adding that she won't lay down and play dead. so, carol, the gop continues to say, the better idea is to simply better enforce the laws that are already on the books. carol, the debate isn't ending anytime soon. >> doesn't appear to be. what role does the school shooting at newtown play here? >> reporter: well, as you indicated, of course, newtown parents, many of them, will be at this news conference today, standing aside new york's mayor bloomberg, and of course, vice president biden. they've been supporting the president's proposed legislation for that assault weapon ban, but will their support make a difference in the end? one thing is for sure, of course, the memories of what happened that day in newtown at sandy hook elementary remain vivid in everyone's mind. here's what the police chief said last night on piers morgan live. >> that day will be etched in my mi
, what harry reid said. we know it's true because we've been reporting on this show really since the gun debate reignited after newtown that it's not just because republicans oppose it. it's also because of democrats, particularly in the senate. in fact, if you look at, we have a set of compiled -- some faces and names of democratic senators. if you look there's about a dozen. these are senators who have either outright said, no way to assault weapons ban, or those who run from us in the hallway when we try to ask or somewhere in between. the reason is most of them come from states where they're the whole concept of gun rights runs very wide and very deep. it would be cultural heresy many of them think to ban any kind of gun and to vote for that. the senators here may support other gun control like background checks or limiting high capacity ammunition clips, even trafficking, and so the thinking and it really has been all along, is that if they put the assault weapons ban in this broad gun control package, then the whole thing will go down whereas if they take it out, and put it as an a
don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything. harry reid looked weak yesterday when he stood in front of the camera and almost conceded, we don't have the votes. go out and get them. if that's what you feel for and feel strongly about it, make it happen. i'm shoorry. you can fault the republicans for their views but the republicans will fight until the end for something they believe in. >> tiffany, i'll let you get in. we're going to have to move on to a different subject. i want to talk about an online question from jada pinkett smith, the actress, married to will smith. the actress said she's not pointing fingers, but she's pushing buttons when she talks about white women on the covers of black magazines. pinkett smith posted this question on facebook, here it is. she said if we ask our white sisters who tend to be the guardians of the covers of mainstream magazines to consider women of color to grace these magazines, should we not offer the same consideration to white women to grace our covers? should women extend their powers to other women simply because they are women?
to be in legislative trouble. senate majority leader harry reid has frankly admitted he doesn't have the votes for a assault weapons ban and support for other legislation also appears shaky. >> it only has been three months since the newtown massacre. i mean, there was so much political support and really a rallying cry after that for stricter gun control measures. why does the political support seem so shaky right now, i guess is the question. >> well, there's two reasons. one is that time has passed. the polls have eroded somewhat. they're still generally in favor of the gun control people, depending on the poll, but not as strongly in favor. also the purpose of purple states. the simple truth is there are lawmakers who come from states where support is not nearly as strong as it is in other places, and they don't want to lose their jobs next year by making a stand on this issue right now, particularly on the more controversial parts. >> and they have to listen to the voters who put them in office as well. >> we'll see how it goes. >> tom foreman, thanks so much. >>> to the white house now w
